The three-year venture established by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and the Chemical Industry Vision 2020 Technology Partnership hopes to accelerate innovation and technology development in efficient-energy systems. The collaboration will support research, development and demonstration of projects to enhance the productivity of energy systems that are integrated with chemical processing and energy-supply systems within a plant.

As part of this project, the DOE seeks a project integrator to work with DOE and Vision 2020 in obtaining research and development project proposals. The integrator will solicit, review, select and manage contracts for innovative energy system technology, and work with DOE, Vision 2020 and technology developers to commercialize the most promising energy systems. The research and developmen will address inefficiencies in on-site heat and power generation, energy distribution and conversion, and chemical processes.
